Like every one in Pakistan guys at tyre repair shops have also developed few scams.i thought of sharing it and purpose is to mention it to them so this robbery or fraud can be stopped.
1) when u go for puncture check or to refill tyre air pressure .guy will put pressure or twist tyre nozzel in such a way that that it leaks. Or while on his way to submerge the tyre in water he will drive screw driver in it so when he submerges in water tons of bubbles cud be seen......you will wonder if such leak was there how come tyre was not flat in 5 mins........
They will sell the tyre nozzle for 150 rupees..this nozzle is available for less than 50 rupees from market..always keep spare in car....they highly dislike it when u tell them u have spare nozel.
2 )While checking for air pressure specially before motor way or any highway journey they will declare one tyre as having low pressure specially if u r sitting in car while he is checking pressure ..or even if u r there he will remove nozel in seconds and show u less pressure ...after that he will encircle tyre with chalk before submerging tyre in water showing u nails which r not leaking at time .he will take a bigger needle or screw driver and pretend to be removing the nail while actually inducing much larger puncture ....so plz donot remove small nail or screws which are not leaking and r seal......other wise u will end up with having 6 to 7 punctures.
3)Check the tyre air pressure after he fixes tyre after repair.....because after repairing the over inflate tire sometimes tire pressure was more than 40.....
Please stop them from these frauds reason is that although amount of money may be less 400 or 500 rupees which they make from this all ..but the destroy tyre worth 8-9 thousand.
